I am Dean Bennici and this is why I shoot film

It’s difficult to understate Dean Bennici’s importance to the world of color infrared photography. When I say difficult, what I mean is that it’s impossible. Dean is singlehandedly responsible for bringing the world Kodak AEROCHROME in 120 and 4×5 formats – having cut down, or bulk loaded every roll and sheet in existence…and that’s without even referring to his immense body of work. With that said, it’s probably best for me to hand over to the man himself. Over to you, Dean.     Hi Dean, what’s this picture, then? DB:  This is a portrait taken with Kodak AEROCHOME...

Travelogue: Cuba

“The cars hiss by my window Like the waves down on the beach The cars hiss by my window Like the waves down on the beach” ~ The Doors   I got this Doors tune in head as I found myself in La Havana. The fan is running on its slowest setting and gentle pushes me out of the Casa Particular I’m renting. In Cuba, you don’t sleep in Hotels; it is expensive and quite impersonal. The better way is to book a room in someone homestay, a Casa Particular. Being greeted with a smile at the doorway and fruit on the table is Cuban style....

Camera Review: Me and my Mamiya RB67 Pro-S by Rob Davie

  Having read a couple of reviews on EMULSIVE from proud owners of other medium format gear (Daniel J. Schneider and his Pentax 6×7, Laidric Stevenson and his Bronica GS1 and of course the Rolleicord Vb by Shawn Mozmode), I just had to chip in with my review of the Grand Battleship of Medium Format aka my Mamiya RB67 Pro-S! Here’s what’s covered in this article:     History of the Mamiya RB67 The Mamiya RB67 was designed to stand alongside Mamiya’s equally robust C series of 6×6 TLRs and was launched in 1970. It went through a few iterations before production...

I am LA Lyles and this is why I shoot film

Today’s interviewee stumbled into film photography as a result of not wanting to be left out of all the fun that was going on around her. I’m incredibly glad that she did and I’m sure you will be too, after seeing her words and work below. Over to you, LA!     Hi LA, what’s this picture, then? LA: This photo is off the very first roll of film I ever shot. I had no clue what I was doing at the time. I was shooting on a Holga with very shaky hands mind you, then this happy accident occurred....

Add to queue: interviewing Ben Horne by Rob Davie

  Introducing Add to Queue Welcome to the first in what I am hoping will become a series of articles each focusing on a particular YouTube video maker who specialises in film photography. First up is one of my absolute favourites, a photographer who travels into some of the wild places in the US with a large 8×10 field camera and camping gear packed into his SUV, complete with film refrigerator! His trips to Death Valley, Zion National Park and Neon Canyon have been inspirational to me and his channel was key to me deciding to purchase a Mamiya...

I am Lorraine Healy and this is why I shoot film

No matter how you feel about Holgas, you have to admit that they’re iconic. Whilst the factory is now well and truly shuttered, the cameras will no doubt continue to have lasting appeal and well, you never know what the future may bring. The brand, with its various models of 35mm and medium format cameras has been an important factor in both making film photography accessible to the masses, as well as providing seemingly endless creative possibilities to many photographers. In fact, a number of the photographers featured on these pages use Holga cameras as their weapon of choice. So...

Photostory: Bars – Mamiya RB67 at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming

The York Photographic Society have a large membership of active enthusiasts, at least 50 or so. I am the only one that uses film regularly and that’s a little bit sad I think. The members I have met to date have all been fascinated and amazed that I am using a 1970’s/80’s Mamiya RB67 rather than the latest Olympus with focus stacking…. I am guessing that anyone reading this probably fully understand the charm and pleasure of the slow, considered process that film enforces, especially when shooting medium and large format film. Anyway, at one of the last events of...

Film review: Fomapan 400 Action / Arista EDU Ultra 400

I first tried Foma films about eight years ago when I moved to the Czech Republic. Since then I’ve purchased it in both 135 and 120 format, I switched to other brands of film, after that purchasing a bulk roll of Fomapan 100 just to see if I could load cartridges myself – until recently I decided to settle on one film and this film was Fomapan 400. It was an easy decision to make because by that time it became my favourite 400 film.     Before I continue with the review I need to note that these days I use my...
